Spin 7 – Ultimate Portability and Power
M4YD is the first model available in the Acer Spin 7 series. Packed with
power, it offers the newest 7th Generation Intel® Core™ i7-7Y75 Processor
(1.3GHz/3.6GHz with Turbo Boost Technology) and up to 8 hours2 of
battery life, making it ideal for frequent travelers or anyone wanting to
stay productive all day. It’s ultra-light at just 2.6 pounds and thinner
than a DVD case with a 0.43-inch all-aluminum unibody design. Diamond cut
edges provide a slender, clean profile and its 14-inch Full HD touch
display’s narrow border maximizes viewing area. Durable Corning® Gorilla®
Glass 4 makes the display tough and helps protect against scratches, while
reducing reflections for better visibility outdoors.
Dual USB 3.1 Type-C ports deliver quick data transfer, connection to an
external display, and can also charge the Spin 7, a smartphone and other
digital devices. A USB Type-C to standard USB (Type A) adapter is also
provided for leveraging legacy mice, keyboards and other peripherals.
Featuring 2x2 802.11ac with MU-MIMO wireless technology, the Spin 7 provides
smooth streaming, fast downloads and up to three times faster connections
than older wireless standards, even at longer ranges.3 In
addition, optimized Dolby® Audio Premium® sound enhancement provides rich
audio via two integrated speakers with channel output that automatically
reverses when the display is flipped over.
Spin 5 – Compact, Long Battery Life
Small and compact, the Acer Spin 5 SP513-51-
55ZR features a 13.3-inch Full HD display and a proprietary 360 degree
dual-torque hinge, which makes it easy to open, while preventing it from
toppling over when using the touchscreen. The crossed-hairline brush finish
on the aluminum top cover has a fabric-like appearance, reducing
fingerprints and making the Spin 5 easy to grip. Equipped with an Intel®
Core™ i5-6200U processor (2.3GHz/2.8GHz with Turbo Boost Technology), the
Acer Spin 5 delivers solid performance with up to 10 hours2 of
battery life. A USB 3.0 port and two USB 2.0 ports provide connectivity to a
wide array of peripherals, while a MicroSD card reader can access images,
data and more from other electronics. This convertible can also be used with
an optional Acer Active Pen and Windows Ink.
The Acer Spin 7 and Spin 5 come with Bluetooth® 4.1 for leveraging wireless
peripherals. Acer BluelightShield™ may help reduce eye strain and fatigue

face to face at home, work and on the go, the advanced HD (1280 x 720)
